THE AVILA AT EUREKA

20141220humboldt_bay_shipping1013-Edit

Here is another view from the Del Norte Street dock. It looks to me that the ship’s name is Avila, and I assume that it is a tanker. I believe that the two tugs are the Thor, and the Atlas.  Part of the Louisiana Pacific complex at Samoa is in the background.

HUMBOLDT BAY IN THE NINETEEN EIGHTIES

This image is a scanned 35mm color slide from about nineteen-eighty. I used to ride my bicycle to the Del Norte dock to watch and photograph the harbor activity. I took this photograph from the bluff above Broadway. The railroad cars are of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad. In the background is the Simpson Pulp Mill.
